I saw david perform, Here Lies Loves, at Radio City a couple of years ago. Amazing!! I'm really looking forward to hearing the finished product......and the multi media live show should be very interesting...oh....by the way. Does anyone know how to obtain a soundboard copy of that performance, it was really a very special evening!! If your as huge a fan as I am, you NEED to have this bootleg!

Too much. I think this will be my wife's early birthday present. We saw him last year in Charlotte and Asheville and he just amazes time after time. I like the sound of this. A LOT....
